The Inaugural ACM Symposium on Computer Science and Law aims to stimulate interest in the emerging field of computer science and law and to articulate a research agenda, an educational agenda, and specific recommendations about how ACM and other institutions can support work in this field.
The Symposium will be held at the New York Law School in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City on October 28, 2019. It will feature invited talks and panels about research, education, and practice in the interplay of computer science and law. The day will conclude with a reception featuring student posters about work in computing and law, on topics ranging from cybersecurity to legal informatics.
